OpeniPhone by OpenWSN


"We have been looking for a few months at the best way to add an IEEE802.15.4 interface to a smart phone. This article details the steps to do so on a iPhone. Specifically, we use a GINA mote running the OpenWSN stack; the jailbroken iPhone runs Python script which is is part of OpenWSN."

CFP: IEEE Communications Magazine - Network and Service Management series

Submission deadline: December 1, 2010

Call for Papers

IEEE Communications Magazine - Network & Service Management Series

Issue: July 2011 (submission deadline: December 1st)

IEEE Communications Magazine has been publishing a series related to Network and Service Management since 2005. The series appears twice a year: it was originally published in April and October and since 2009 it is published in July and December. The series provides articles on the latest developments in this well-established and thriving discipline. Published articles are expected to highlight recent research achievements in this field and provide insight into theoretical and practical issues related to the evolution of network and service management from different perspectives. The series provides a forum for the publication of both academic and industrial research, addressing the state of the art, theory and practice in network and service management. Both original research and review papers are welcome, in the style expected for IEEE Communications Magazine. In particular articles summarizing the results of large research projects, including PhD thesis, are suited for this series. Articles should be of tutorial nature, written in a style comprehensible to readers outside the speciality of Network and Service Management. This series therefore complements the now established IEEE Transactions on Network & Service Management (TNSM) – General areas include but are not limited to:

* Management models, architectures and frameworks
* Network and service provisioning, reliability and quality assurance
* Management functions
* Management standards, technologies and platforms
* Management policies
* Applications, case studies and experiences

The above list is not exhaustive, with submissions related to interesting ideas broadly related to network and service management encouraged.

IEEE Communications Magazine is read by tens of thousands of readers from both academia and industry and has a 5-year impact factor of 3.3, which is amongst the highest in the field. The published papers will also be available on-line through IEEE Xplore and Communications Magazine Interactive, the WWW edition of the magazine. Details about IEEE Communications Magazine can be found at
Important dates:

Manuscripts due: December 1, 2010
Acceptance notification: March 31, 2011
Publication date: July 2011

Wireless Sensor Networks Aid Midmarket | Michael Singer

"Midmarket companies looking to keep a better handle on their operation costs could certainly benefit from a dose of wireless sensors, according to a new report.

Sensors, GPS mobile devices, and radio frequency ID (RFID) tags are being embedded across enterprises big and small -- from supply chains and healthcare networks to manufacturing and transportation systems. The technology carries asset information so that enterprises can effectively manage and control systems.

Over the next five years, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are expected to become more prevalent in enterprise applications, according to a new report by Research and Markets . Midmarket companies in particular will be driven to look for options that will conserve installation and operation costs, analysts with the firm note.

But outside of RFID and GPS technologies, there are a lot of WSN standards to choose from for enterprises. And unfortunately, many of the technologies are still in a development phase. Low-rate, wireless, personal-area networks (IEEE 802.15.4), EnOcean, Bluetooth Low Energy,Dash7Wavenis, low-power WiFi, and ZigBee are often cited during evaluations.
So how does a midmarket enterprise choose wisely when looking to build smarter wireless sensor networks?"
